Throwback Thursday: Exclamation Cologne Spray

Do you remember the first fragrance that really made you sit up and take notice? For me, it was 1988, and the perfume was Exclamation by Coty. The moment I laid eyes on it, I simply had to have it!

Truth be told, I'm pretty sure this fragrance could have smelled terrible and I still would have wanted it. I just loved the shape of the bottle, which was an oversized black and white exclamation point. (What can I say? I've always been obsessed with all things grammar, punctuation and spelling.) And, actually, I really don't even remember what it smelled like, although I recall a certain muskiness, which by today's standards would equate to me hating it.

But love this fragrance I did ... and buy it time and time again, I did! The notes of jasmine, apricot, green, peach, bergamot, orris root, heliotrope, lily of the valley, rose, sandalwood, amber, cinnamon, musk, vanilla and cedar just made me exclaim with glee! I wore this fragrance every single day, not really because of the scent but because I just loved that exclamation point shaped bottle so darn much.

And here's a fun fact ... Famke Janssen was the model in the ads! Check her out:
